Rusted out battery tray. I've never fabricated before, but I was pretty happy with the way the new tray turned out. I bought a Harbor Freight 30" metal brake to do the job.
At the time, I didn't have a spot welder, so I used a wire feed welder.

Test fitting to make sure it's level, not welded yet.

Welded to the vertical brackets. A change was made somewhere between 1979 and 1982. The tray on the 82 sits right down on the frame, which also helps to rust out the lower front hood quicker. I did notice the battery sitting up higher, blocks the radiator on the 79. The 82 also has a taller radiator.
